    • I have two questions.  Does the developing the PD mask have any physical sensations?  I am experiencing some tightness, around my right eye and surrounding area, and it just feels "different"   Is this the beginning of the mask? I am newly diagnosed with PD.  Pill rolling in my right hand was the first sign I noticed in June.  Now I have lost my right arm swing and a resting tremor in right hand.  This week I started pill rolling on the left.  Does this mean my disease is progressing quickly?
    • Sport usually burns out temporary intellectual activity and dopamine secretion / retention. Sport is good for the body and relaxes the mind but, you have to recover after physical exercise. I think that intellectual activities combined with light physical exercise is a good approach at first. I think it`s easier for the body to get used to physical effort gradually rather than doing intense sports rarely. In this way, i think dopamine levels will stay the same (but again, gradually).
    • Welcome JMMouse, Most of us on this forum have the common Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease which is quite different from CBD.  You used the word "tentatively" and I think I can speak for everyone here when I say that I hope the doctors are wrong.  You're on the right path with a MDS.  These Parkinsonism diseases are complex and difficult to diagnose so consulting with the best will likely get you some answers.  Hang in there and keep us posted.  Gardener
    • John Hoefen, i completely agree with Stump. Please check your partisan politics at the door. It just gets everybody riled up and taking sides. Most of us have Parkinson’s or support someone wit it.  Papa57, I feel your pain and concern. I’m a couple of years behind you and am struggling to figure out my future and the love of my life. Keep us posted as you figure stuff out because it is useful to everyone.  Cheers. Dave FYI John H.: We are not a democracy but rather a representative democracy, which is a form of democracy. A direct democracy makes laws (and other government decisions) predominantly by majority vote. Some lawmaking is done this way, on the state and local levels, but it’s only a tiny fraction of all lawmaking.
